Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE: RGR) announces the new Hawkeye® Hunter rifle chambered in several short- and long-action calibers. Based on the popular Hawkeye Standard with a classic American walnut stock, this new stainless steel rifle comes paired with a factory-installed picatinny rail and threaded barrel, providing the avid hunter with the ultimate, rugged and hard-hitting rifle.
The Hawkeye Hunter is initially being offered in four different calibers: 6.5 Creedmoor, .308 Winchester, 30-06 Springfield and .300 Winchester Magnum. All Hunter rifles feature a cold hammer-forged, satin stainless finished barrel, a factory-installed 20 MOA picatinny rail for mounting optics and an American walnut stock. Additionally, the .300 Winchester Magnum configuration features a removable Ruger® radial-port muzzle brake to significantly reduce felt recoil.
The Hunter also boasts the traditional Hawkeye, Mauser-type controlled feeding, powerful claw extractor and features a three-position safety, allowing the shooter to lock the bolt or to load and unload the rifle with the safety engaged. The stock comes equipped with standard sling swivel studs and a highly-effective recoil pad.
The Hawkeye Hunter comes outfitted with the light and crisp Ruger LC6™ trigger and also features a hinged, solid-steel floorplate for easy unloading without having to chamber each cartridge. Each rifle features an engraved Ruger logo and patented latch that is flush with the trigger guard to avoid accidental dumping of cartridges.
